You: First, I'm going to community college because I love Lake Stevens too much to leave, then I'm going to Safeway to deposit my paycheck that I got from working at either the outlet mall or an espresso stand. After that, I'm going to spend my paycheck by trying to avoid people I know at Target or tanning at Bahama Sun or eating at Ixtapa with the same friends I hung out with in high school who probably did the same thing today. Lastly, I'm going end my day on Facebook looking up who pregnant these days.
